Due to weather the previous few days, the roads to both Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers were closed from flooding. So to see the glaciers, we took a helicopter ride. I thought it was an excellent experience I got several great shots. Saw mostly the FJ glacier and just a little bit of the Fox glacier. Landed at the base of Mount Tasman. Saw a couple waterfalls and the glacial river flowing out from the glacier.
I really appreciated that the pilot did not do any maneuvers that were designed to make my stomach lurch. Was a smooth ride the whole way.
